Hey watch this. I am going to turn that satyr into an elf for an hour.The pooka, are practical jokers who enjoy using their magic to change another's race or ethnicity. These jokes have on occasion led to some very interesting if devastating repercussions.
"EEEEK!!!! Get out of here you fiend." "But Chandral, it's me Glimhook." CLANG!! "Don't lie to me you filthy elf. I know my husband and you are not him." Rubbing his head and watching his wife with the frying pan in her hands he shifted back to his true form. Chandral dropped the frying pan rushing over to her husband. "Oh Glim, I am so sorry." "Dang pooka. Why did they choose me? Today of all days. Happy anniversary love."
Pooka take pleasure in giving their children bizarre names such as table, leg, and hat. The odd thing is, most pooka take pride in their name.
"What kind of name is chair?" "It is a perfectly fine name. In fact it is so much better than Eilise, what kind of name is Eilise anyway?"
Culture and cultural heritage
For pooka, the pleasure of a good joke is its own reward. They do, however, on occasion choose to be serious. This happens when someone comes to them with a request to use their special magic to alter who or what they are on a semi-permanent basis. Pooka honestly do not like to do this unless there is a very good reason behind it. Even then they will try to talk the person out of this action.
Shared customary codes and values
Pooka, love practical jokes. They even play them on each other. Pooka never get upset at being the target of a practical joke even if it is painful.
Common Etiquette rules
Common etiquette for a pooka is to always have a smile. If you run into a pooka and aren't smiling they are likely to play a prank on you in hopes of putting a smile on your face.
Common Dress code
Pooka enjoy wearing clothing that seems to clash, looks ridiculous, or even better both. This has caused many elves and nymphs fits, for what they consider to be a lack of any fashion sense on the part of the pooka. Many pooka have been seen to wear shorts on their heads as hats, shoes on their hands, and shirts as shorts just for the absurdity of it.
Birth & Baptismal Rites
This is the only time the pooka are truly sombre. The family gathers and there is much weeping, for now, the parents are going to be extra busy and unable to play as many jokes as they once did.
Coming of Age Rites
For pooka, the coming of age can be a difficult time as they are required to prove they can take a joke. They must also prove they are masters of the absurd while still being serious. This means having a conversation while playing a joke on someone, preferably the person they are talking to. The young adult is evicted from their family home to make their way in the world for a period of ten years before they settle down.
Funerary and Memorial customs
When a pooka dies, the rest of the family has a party. Drink flows freely and there is much gaiety.
